Corsair expects GPUs ‘will be back to MSRP in the near term, perhaps discounted below’

Corsair expects graphics card supply to improve rather sharpish and prices to potentially drop below MSRP. I know it sounds too good to be true after over a year of shortages and soaring prices, but we are beginning to see things improve. As a company that builds PCs and sells components, Corsair probably has a decent idea of what’s going on behind the scenes, too.

“During Q1, GPU cards, which are the most expensive item in a gaming PC, were still at a high premium, roughly 150% of MSRP, and even with this premium, we saw gaming PC build activity slightly higher than pre-pandemic and pre-GPU shortage levels,” the company’s CEO, Andy Paul, says in an earnings statement.
